Perforce: to create a symbolic link

Hi all,

I am doing a migration from SVN to prforce. currently, I am using a tool p4 convert svn to do the migration. I have tested the tool and its working fine. The basic procedure to do the migration is to create the dump file of the SVN repositories and then use the tool to do the migration. Everything in SVN is getting Migrated to Perforce except that of the SYMBOLIC links. The only thing i get in perforce after the migration for the symbolic is a files which contains the information about the symbolic links present, but symbolic links are not created on perforce. Is there any way to create the SYMBOLIC links in perforce using this files or is there a concept of symbolic links in perforce(windows). if so please help.

Hi jayaswal,

Please confirm once whether you have the symbolic links in the Dump file.
